Sheffield Wednesday are in a good run of form at the moment, but their three match winning streak in the Championship was brought to a halt on Saturday as they drew to Stoke.
The Owls head to The City Ground to face Nottingham Forest tonight, hoping to return to winning ways.
Manager Jos Luhukay should look to new loan signing Josh Onomah to provide the spark for his side to earn victory against Aitor Karanka’s men.
The 21-year-old Tottenham player injects dynamism and skill into the Wednesday attack, and will provide a creative spark behind Steven Fletcher.
The trouble is, both wingers Lucas João and Marco Matias are playing particularly well for The Owls at the moment, so it would be unfair for either to be dropped. However, with a short turnaround since their last match, and a fairly tricky encounter with Aston Villa at the weekend, Luhukay may look to rotate his squad in order to keep players fresh. In that case, Onomah (valued at £2.7m on Transfermarkt.co.uk) is the perfect man to step up, and it would mean that Wednesday are not weakened in the slightest.
The Owls currently sit three points ahead of Nottingham Forest, but a loss would see tonight’s rivals move ahead of them in the Championship table.
